Thread Name: Lyr Req: Broad Black Brimmer (Irish song)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Broad, Black Brimmer-Irish song
As I recall the tale, the Wolfe Tones credit this song to Noel Nagle, their whistler player extraordinaire, who says he collected the song in Rebel Cork. I don't recollect that they gave any further info as to where or from whom. It is one of the classics of the genre.
